The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, or ‘NATO’ as it is also known, is an agreement between a group of countries regarding their common goals towards ‘defence’ of their combined nations against attack, primarily from Russia (The former Soviet Union).
The problem with this is that the acronym is misleading. It should read as the ‘North American Treaty Organisation’ due to the fact that it revolves 100% around North America. Namely The USA. Harking back to the title of the article, all the resolutions which the organisation make do not see the light of day unless the American reps agree to them. Hardly a democracy. Hardly a treaty.
Donald Trump recently said that NATO was a waste of time among other condemnations he uttered.
Below is a list of words which could describe most countries relationship with the US:
I am sure you could add more descriptive words to the list.
Destabilizing, or throwing money and dependency at other countries in return for allegiance.
Examples which bear this label are:
Russia still ‘bad guys’ us good guys( A stooge used to show OUR greatness)
These are some ways in which the UN, for all intents and purposes, has been relegated to a ‘plaything’ of the US.
The lastest incident was a recently, after Donald Trump (he of such amazing intellect and eloquence) announced America’s recongition of Jerusalem as the defacto capital of Israel( Tel Aviv is the internationally recognized capital) and that they would move their embassy there.
This brought international reaction which culminated in a vote to formally, veto this idea. Before the vote, Trump made several statememts regarding the fact that the US is by far the largest contributor to the UN, provides billions in aid to countries, only for these countries to go against them. Nikki Hailey, the UN Ambassador took to the stage at the General Assembly before the vote, to ‘warn’ countries that “we will be taking the names of the countries who vote against us”
BULLYING- is the simple definition of this tactic. Give us want we want, when we want it, or you will be in trouble.
Both NATO and the UN, need To be rid of ‘The Land of The Free’, and stop claiming to be the protectors of the world’s nations, when they clearly are not, and stop trying to maintain some semblence of credibility, when they have none.
